About Jenn

Giving Back To Our Raleigh Community

Jenn Nowalk believes strongly in giving back the community which is why she co-founded the Triangle Spokes Group with fellow real estate agent and friend, Ashley Wilson.  Today, Jenn spends a lot of her free time raising money and running the Triangle Spokes Group and felt it important to incorporate it into her daily real estate business. 

The Original Founders
In 1994, two local businessmen realized the need a lot of families experience at Christmas and asked themselves what they could do to help. Their conclusion was to challenge one another to raise enough money to purchase bicycles. Those bikes would be donated to The Salvation Army in Charlotte and distributed to local less fortunate children through the Christmas Bureau.  For many of these children their single wish was a brand new bicycle. The first year, 17 bicycles were purchased from the fundraiser and enhanced 17 families’ Christmas.  Today, The Spokes Group has given away 23,371 bikes.  Eighteen years later, the need within Charlotte and beyond is still apparent and their challenge is being extended to the Triangle as they welcomed a new Spokes Group Chapter!


The Triangle Spokes Group Is Born
When Ashley Wilson, sister-in-law of one of the Charlotte Spokes Group founders, and Jenn Nowalk first learned  in detail about the success stories of The Spokes Group in Charlotte they knew that many children in the Triangle could also benefit from this great cause.  So, after some initial local market research and discussions with the Charlotte founders, the Triangle Spokes Group was officially born. 
 

After a very successful fifth year in 2011, The Triangle Spokes Group has given away 1550 shiny new bicycles to date.  Ashley and Jenn, along with a founding team of Triangle Spokes Group volunteers, look forward to your support in bringing the dream of a brand new bicycle to Triangle children for many years to come!  Click here to learn more about the Triangle Spokes Group.
